This year’s festival is designed with two consecutive programs – meaning more patrons can enjoy the magic of world-class chamber music in the region’s historic venues while maintaining safe distancing.
The two, three-day programs will see performances by the world-renowned Goldner String Quartet, acclaimed percussionist Claire Edwardes, the divine duo of Erin Helyard and David Greco, harpist and broadcaster Genevieve Lang and one of Australia’s most revered classical musicians, Piers Lane.
TCMF Director Allanah Dopson said it was exciting to be able to bring such a diverse and talented line-up of musicians to Tasmania after an extremely challenging period for performing arts festivals.
“When we made the difficult decision to call 2020’s festival off, we vowed to return more special than ever in 2021. After not being able to do that, we’ve doubled down for 2022,” Ms Dopson said.
“We’re delighted to be able to help fill the void left by the absence of music and experiences of this type in Tasmania for artists, patrons and tourism operators alike with a program filled with some of the nation’s best artists.
“We’re also excited to bring the festival to Westbury for the very first time, showcasing more of the beauty of northern Tasmania with its stunning historic venues, renowned food and wine and picturesque rolling countryside, all tied together with world-class chamber music.”
